    i dont buy that, in fact I think it is olson that is is in danger of being over whelmed

    lets remember he is also learning this offense on the fly as he installs it.

    It is an offense he has never used before.

    why is there always the opinion that the coach is smarter than the player?

    I think its olson that is drawing from a dumbed down offense and pryor is ahead of him

  • Arizona (Palmer) 3-2
    Carolina (Newton) 1-3

    I thought you were all about “W’s”.
    What ever fits your agenda I guess.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg


    Brahs, the Dawg has been up since 11:00am, inspired by the musical pulse swirling in his jammies

    Just like Jimmy Page and Bob Marley, the Dawg is inspired to create greatness and share it with the world. And with a bunch of blog dorks.

    My first jam is totally reggae inspired but also has a mellow vocal line that harkens back to the time this coked out stripper gave me my first rim job

    There shall be wafting horns, soft tribal percussion and a group of 5 nubian babes (with big fake booblies) chanting OHHH LA LA LA LA in the background

    Will take a sweet dump then hit you back with these legendary lyrics, consider yourselves lucky


  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Not exactly going out on a limb here.

    It’s because you’re wrong.

  • Raider_Riff

    Ummm…. Lets not forget Barnett!

  • DKnight007

    So glad Coliseum City has life now with these big time investors coming into to play to execute the state of the art and visionary plan. IMO, Lacob and Wolff need to revaluate the waterfront SF and SJ plans. They better open their eyes. I think Wolff is going to end up getting a new ballpark in Coliseum City or at Howard Terminal whether he likes it or not. Seems like the A’s will be staying in Oakland.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    this is why the jet sweep ghost reverse and bubble screens are super important.

    ford and moore are natural runners, get them the ball in space near the line of scrimmage and let them run.

    Once the defense laods the box to stop these actions pump and go deep or hit streeter butler or rivera in the seams that open as a result

    this is how you compliment the r/o and marry it with the wco

    olson should be watching every clemson and texas a&m game from the last two seasons and stealing the playbook

  • william banks

    I know,dmc is like buying a new car thats turning out to be a lemon.Its always in the shop being fixed.

  • Raideraholic

    I had a feeling you would say that. I am not insinuating lack of intelligence on Pryor’s part at all. I think he has a high football I.Q.
    Is it possible the coaching staff just doesn’t want to set him up for failure?
    Maybe they want to see him continue to grow (as he is) and then add more and more to the offense and overall play calling. Try to see both sides.
    I am behind Pryor 100%

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    wrong about what?

    argue with clemson and teaxs a&m

    those offenses do exactly what i described above

  • DKnight007

    Yeah. Barnett also for sure.

  • Thec

    Yeah I am dirt…lol

    To be clear gannon is NOT number 12.

  • DutchRaid

    I think there is should be a proposition on the ballot to petition MLB to force Wolff to sell the team…if after-all, baseball is America’s game.

  • DKnight007

    I’m still not sold on DA either. Olsen still needs to show me more. DA, Olsen and Tarver 2nd half adjustments seem to be non existent. They need to stay aggressive in the 2nd half of games, especially if they have a lead.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Mistic’s a few bricks short of a load.

  • HGDaddy
  • DKnight007

    I would have loved to have coached. Life just didn’t lead me to that path.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    those were olsons words not mine

    I really dig up a June Reggie McKenzie quote ripping my evaluation of Flynn? Yeah … I did. I’m weak #Raiders


  • The_Judge37

    No shout out for the Big Blue Wreckin Krew today?

  • Nick Gancayco

    Wilson and Kaepernick both look avg. when their running games arent bullying opponents. I dont think either if them could do better than oryor is doing if they were on the raiders.

  • DKnight007

    I aagree. Olsen needs to start mixing things up a bit more and using more mis direction plays to keep defenses guessing and off balance. Ford needs to get more touches. He is being wasted.

  • Raider_Riff

    I know everyone is falling in love with our new defense.

    But something tells me that their will always be a healthy amount of turnover on this team. Especially on that side of the ball.

    Difference makers will be kept. But our beloved role players might never last long here.

    Reggie is now showing a trend of getting the best out of guys playing on 1 year deals. These are guys he thinks he can find every single year.

    Guys are going to have to WANT to stay here or they can go cash in elsewhere. Hometown/Incentive laden contracts are going to be the norm.

    Houston will get paid. So will Woodson. Pryor should be locked up yesterday before he his full nationwide rockstar status and ends up costing us 15 million a year.

    Offer TP2 10 years at 7 million a year today and he’d sign it in a heartbeat. And as he develops into the star he’s destined to be, youre getting him at about 13 million a year less than he’ll eventually be worth.

    I think everyone else will get a reality check. Our O-Line needs to be way better, but with what TP,Sporano and the practice guys are doing, it hurts Veldy’s value.

    Veldy will get paid OK. DMC will get Reggie Bush money at most. Porter and Jenkins will get paid “ok”.

    I think out of anyone, Barnett is playing his way into a decent contract, maybe more.

    Remember, well fed sharks dont hunt. Reggie knows this and will always use it to his advantage.

  • Thec

    “I bring up McKenzie’s quarterback dealings and comments on the record to point out how thankful he should be for Terrelle Pryor. The quarterback whom late owner Al Davis drafted and whom his son, Mark, nudged McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen to start in the season finale last year has become the heart of the 2-3 team. The quarterback McKenzie never expected to beat out Flynn.”

  • seymour bush

    It’s Burnett. Raider fan.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    James McCalister played RB for the eagles and Patsies in the mid 70’s. 6’3, 240 lbs. Played for my high school. Game plan was simple. Get him the ball=TD.
    This isn’t high shool. This isn’t college.This is the NFL.

  • DKnight007

    haha…I miss this guy!

  • I dunno why anyone would even consider that site.
    Let alone actually tour the area.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Pushing out a duece and a sweet BIG BLUE recap now, brah

  • Raider_Riff

    It’s Terrelle Pryor. Hater.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    nonsensical, non sequitur

    are you aware that brady manning and brees all run A COLLEGE OFFENSE?

    Its called the spread and its all the rage now in the nfl

    stop sexing llamas and watch some football, so you may have an informed opinion

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    we need this

  • The_Judge37

    Droppin a duece on only 3 days rest?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Same here. As often as possible.

  • nolimits3333

    Woodson can’t tackle.

  • Theghostronin79

    are you f’kin serious?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Looked dam good, no doubt.

  • nolimits3333

    Dead serious.
    Do you even watch the games?

  • The Beeeeech Dawg


    Nerds, the Dawg was just pushing out a spicy poo snake thinking about how them Boyz N Blue cut down the LIL TOMAHAWKS last night

    HUGE shout outs to my BOYZ juan gone, hanley the hammer, clayton the bro dude (sorry nothing really rhymes with clayton) and carl the homerin’ monster mash (see above)

    The Dawg was getting nervous down by 1 run in the 8th, when my girlfriend Angela came in with a fresh Awesome Blossom she just fried up and a fresh pitcher of top shelf margs

    She started stroking the Lawg in a seductive manner and said, “Don’t worry, Big Dawg, Uribe can’t bunt, so will instead mash a 2 run jack”

    Then we did a quick 69 and when I came up for air JU was sending that dizzy out of Chavez

    The Dawg started screaming and crying but realized he needed to finish the 69 so he dived back in and missed the post game show


  • Theghostronin79

    No……..Not a one.

  • nolimits3333

    It shows.
    Woodson had one good tackle against the Colts, but he gets run over a lot.

  • Thec

    Minimize button = Great blogging innovation.
    See the name of poster, hit minimize wham.

    No need to wade through the insignificant blather…

  • Raider_Riff

    Never mind the MJD TD saving diving tackle he made vs the Jaguars?


  • he sure did,
    Still hate the Rex/Jets

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Probably attended more Raider Games than you’ve watched.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    “whispers of flynn moping in meetings after being demoted”


    flynn = kolb = rob johnson


  • Papertiger

    Sounds like the situation couldn’t have come at a worse time, so to speak.

  • The_Judge37


  • Thec

    I read somewhere that he never tried to help TP2.
    flynch was never a Raider.

  • DKnight007

    Yeah that site would just be a terrible location. If Davis wants to look at a suburb area with plenty of land he should keep looking and talking to Dublin officials about the Camp Parks site in Dublin right off the BART line. Now that location would be ideal for a new stadium. Right smack in the middle of two major freeways 580/680 intersections and right in the middle where most Raider fans are located between Alameda, Contra Costa and San Joaquin Counties and of course BART is right there!
